to add to make it workable for america's businesses and taxpayers for more than just one year. i think there's a lot more work that has to be done to get this right. having said that, we have to do something. we know the current system, the status quo is unacceptable for businesses and for people that pay for insurance. dave: the president has stated that there's some type of right-wing conspiracy, that that's the trouble in passing this health care legislation ex-said that on this radio show last week so what do you make of that assumption that there's a right-wing conspiracy when he has trouble with people in his own party like yourself? >> well, i don't think, first of all, that president obama has trouble with democrats or republicans. think we have to get a system that's workable, affordable for businesses, for individuals that pay a lot of money for health insurance for their families, and for taxpayers that collect -- picking up a very big tab for medicare and medicaid. think there are people on the left and right that have their very strong, philosophical views, of what needs

be an ambassador for america. and clearly he's stepping out there. in this situation. gretchen: what i find highly important in this story is that the white house sanctioned him to go there. obviously they would have to. but to me that speaks volumes. you haven't heard a lot about president obama calling up president clinton and saying, hey, what about health care reform? what about cash for clunkers? maybe he is. i'm not sure. but i think this is an important role for bill clinton to take on. because he has had a good relationship -- let's face it. a good communicator. so if he can get this job done that will be a great thing. peter: there was an expert in asian affairs who said, listen, you can't go there not having it done already. it would be a tremendous loss of face for the former president to go there and not bring these folks home. so hopefully he is successful in bringing these journalists home back to america. steve: absolutely. meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about this. it is a government program that actually a lot of people are excited about. maybe it doesn't make a lot of sense
from bank of america. and a lot of people might scratch their heads and say how could this be "forbes'" number two guy when bank of america got bailout money, and its stock is down 60% from five years ago. so i turn to you, mr. money man. eric: i'm looking at this report. brian and i were just talking about how did they rank some of these things. you see ken lewis doing very well. that stock went from about a $2 price all the way up $10, $12. so maybe they took it from that time period when it was at its low to where it was now or where it is now. they see a substantial increase in value of the company. problem is, two, three years ago, you would see a complete index picture. brian: if it wasn't for that whole i'll buy merrill lynch, who's with me problem, they would have had a great year. gretchen: the government forcing him to buy merrill lynch? brian: that's what it seems. eric: don't forget, tim geithner, head of the new york fet fed at the time, was in those meetings when bank of america bought merrill lynch. it looks like they never preal li wanted to buy merrill lynch. it likes
are the strongest argument. why should america trust the government with our health care? joining us now, the author of the best seller, "catastrophe, closed with dick morris. dick, do you think the president wants his analogy back? do not think about the post office when you think about health care. >> if you want to reach out and grab those words and put them back in if you are the president. look at the press office, look at the veterans affairs, you see nothing but tremendous problems. the post office is losing $7 billion every year. the point is that the reason that the post office does not defeat ups and fed-ex is because it is a lot simpler to deliver a package that it is to provide quality medical care. in terms of a package, people are going to go with whoever is more reliable. the government subsidy ensures that the public auction will win. what obama is doing when he hits the public against the private is he is having two horses running, about one is on steroids. brian: that is a perfect point. i was in a u.b.s. store on saturday, they asked me if i could do any -- if they could do anythi
about a bunch of stuff that is against what america stands for. then the saudis have countered, ok, we fixed the textbook. the saudis have said a number of times we fixed the textbooks. that satisfied critics? >> no. they've cooked the textbooks. maybe not fixed them. maybe they sort of played a shelf game with them. but basically the contradict limb is still saudi-funded, saudi-controlled, saudi-influenced. working beneath it, within it and around it is this whole issue of anti-semitism, anti-christian stuff. it's very real. we know the doctrine which basically talks about the idea that they can sort of lie about these kind of things is also a very, very present reality. steve: pastor, you mentioned 25 years ago christian school was asked to expand and told they could not because of traffic and stuff like that. i used to live out there. traffic is much worse now. why did they go ahead and approve this, do you think, given the fact -- are they trying to look a certain way? >> yeah. i think so. i think on the one side they said we can't oppose this, some of those who voted in the 6-4 vo
is for the changes in health care called health care for america now sent out a four-page memo and effectively it kind of dovetails with what axlerod said or axlerod's assistant, the deputy chief of staff, said we'll hit them back twice as hard. this memo from this outfit says if right-wingers yell at officials, left wingers need to coordinate with congress people. we need to provide them cover. peter, you touched on it a moment ago with the organized unions that apparently have been enlisted to help out. because apparently a number of people reported that members of seiu, a service employees international union, were at both the town halls yesterday in tampa and also in st. louis. and there's an interesting confluence here. a former union official from seiu, a man by the name of patrick gaspard these days is the white house political director. so there you've got the guy with deep union ties who is now the political director at the white house. and also, we understand that a number of people are saying, yes, the union is out in force because they're trying to counter people who are against th
